Great work gents - great results too!

That answers one of my 'so stupid I was afraid to ask' questions about TT-ing - what do you do with your keys?
Currently, as I ride in my trisuit, and wear a pair of tri shorts for a bit of padding, I put them in the inside pocket of the tri shorts - though it makes me look like I have some sort of weird abdominal growth.
Looking forward to the arrival of a skinsuit!

Great read Gents very enjoyable. Jon for the final showdown may I suggest you head to the royal county. Not a pesky hill in sight.
Gonna be tough to come back after losing he home leg. But I'm rooting for you as I consider you team leader of the chunky lads.

No offence Jack. ;)

Fear not Sir, I have a cunning plan, the battle was lost but the war can still be won. And I have yet to play my 'Joker '.

I suspect it may involve a swim race, and giving Jack one of your special, weighted, race belts.

He's planning on bring back a shark from his travels. He also wanted to borrow one of
My jerseys. "Something with a bit of scent on it" he said.

I don't know what to make of that.

Full of Jurassic loveliness. If only we'd had somebody available to make film of the Aerosaurs battling today. Nice to see that the prologue brought a close finish but perhaps a surprise victor! All bets are off, expect the unexpected, this one is going to be one above the neck rather than below, I suspect.

If jon.e is looking for a TT to end the season with then maybe you could ask Portsmouth and North End CC... some of their loops around the Southsea sea front have as much as 10m of elevation in 10 miles. That's a brutal day out on the riviera.

Great times though, Jon.e-saurus and Jackasaurus-Rex. Great times indeed.
I had fun once. It was awful.
